This review is better than the last one (graphic card review), because you are expanding the game/test lists, again (as your testbench had a months ago).

With this movement you´ll achieve a more neutral and representative performance. More games is good for correct deviations of performance by heavy biased games.

A heterogeneus list of games (TWIMTBP and Gaming evolved), if it´s a large and representativa list of the current bestseller games, then you can compensate this problem with this action (more games in the test setup).

Congratulations, this is a very good movement for the defense of your honesty as reviewers.

I guess you'll call Xbitlabs biased again when they include all these AMD Gaming Evolved titles next?

- Far Cry 3
- Bioshock Infinite
- Tomb Raider
- Hitman: Absolution
- Medal of Honor: Warfighter

Sir, you don´t understand NOthing.

I´m saying that a long list of games makes that the titles with HUGE byass, to AMD or to nvidia, will be compensated between them.

A short list is susceptible to stochastic drift in the performance.

An very much more if the short list includes some heavy biased game. With long list and more titles, and some counterparts to the heavy "gaming evolved" games (others heavy "twimtbp" games), you have more chances to obtain a representative gaming performance.

The heavy biased games are there yet (Dirt showdown, AvP, SniperV2 and Sleeping dogs), but they are compensated with other games with heavy biased performanche to nvidia cards (Lost Planet 2, Crysis2, Batman AA). And with more "neutral" games in the test, the test are more neutral.

It´s easy, Can you understand the concept of searching the neutrality in the performance tests?

All it´s about it.

Great review. It's nice to see such healthy competition between AMD and NVidia. Got to love it.

On separate topic, the page says there are two comments but only show one. On another article (SK Hynix Introduces DDR3L), it has 1 comment but shows none. Maybe it is a bug?
